The world’s top pancreatic experts believe a well-funded, coordinated research and development program could lead to effective treatments within 10 years. Mission: Cure is working to make that happen. Consulting with pancreatic experts from the nation’s top research and healthcare institutions, we are developing a 10-year plan.

To discover therapies that will significantly improve patient outcomes in 10 years, Mission: Cure will:

Use advanced genetic testing and data aggregation tools (precision medicine) to understand causes, target promising therapies, and provide rapid feedback on impact.

Provide funding and incentives to ensure that new therapies in development move through the clinical trial process efficiently.

Systematically test already-approved pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, including generic drugs.

Engage experts and innovative thinkers in problem-solving to identify new approaches and scientific advances that could lead to a breakthrough.

Aggressively manage and coordinate all efforts toward achieving the agreed-upon patient outcomes.

In collaboration with our advisors, we are developing a roadmap of specific therapies and interventions to support. We welcome feedback on this approach and ideas for how to improve it. Please email us at
